Goodreads Believes in Book Fairies – and You Can, TooPosted by Cynthia on August 28, 2017
On Monday, September 18, you can help even more readers find amazing books by participating in our Hide a Book Day. As part of our Ten-Year Anniversary Celebration, Goodreads is teaming up with our fellow book lovers at The Book Fairies to hide books around their neighborhoods for people to find, read, and leave for the next person.
We’re inviting authors to participate, too. You can leave out one of your own books or share a favorite book from another author. Hiding your own book? Make it extra special by signing it. Don’t forget to ask your street team or beta reviewers to get involved as well. Here’s everything you need to know to get involved:
- First you need the two stickers for each book. Order them here to get your stickers before September 18. The Book Fairies work magic, but they are based in England and do need time to get them out to you, so don't delay (order them today)!
- Hide the book in a semi-obvious spot for someone to find. We recommend a high-traffic area like train and bus stops, national monuments, and parks. But watch the weather forecast as you don’t want your book to get soggy.
- Once you’ve hidden a book, take a picture and share it with your fellow Goodreads members and Book Fairies on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #goodreadsturns10 #hideabookday, #ibelieveinbookfairies.
You never know if you’re placing a book for someone who finds it at exactly the right time, and how they end up changing the world because of it.
Which book will you hide for other readers to find on September 18? Tell us in the comments!
